Another commissioned quilt for the Wicked Step Mother…Hmmm, something is so wrong about making a quilt for a dog but it’s for family-what can I say???
A little background is in order… my father and my Wicked Step Mother (a shared affection in deed :-)), welcomed Zoe into their lives in 2005 and their lives have changed forever. First of all, they are obsessed. So much so, I think Zoe ranks over their own grandchildren…really, I think an intervention is in order!
Here is evidence. I would like to think that this was staged as a joke, but I am afraid, it might not be…or perhaps they should explain in their own defense?
Ok, back to quilting… I used my awesome Accuquilt Go!Baby with my new Rick Rack die! Woohoo! Both rock-get them! Check out the starter set! And sign up on their website for 22 free patterns! Join the other 50,000 friends on Accuquilt’s Facebook page!
So I cut my rick rack with ease using my lovely Go!Baby. I layered my fabric with interfacing to make it all cut perfectly with the interfacing! I am telling you-the Go!Baby makes this sooooo easy and fast! My interfacing of choice is my favorite Pellon Wonder Under 805 (love this stuff-check it out!). Used my Warm and Natural Batting (again, love this stuff, won’t quilt without it!) and sealed it with a minky dot cuddle fabric… wow! do you think I can change the name and keep it instead? Ha!
And so, I machine quilted the rest using white and metallic threads to make it even more festive! Yes, festive for the Zoe, it does seem so wrong… but if it were your precious baby, you would do the same I suppose!
Postscript: I just know I am going to hear it from my brother… he sent fabric and threatened me that I better not make Zoe’s quilt before his-ooops… Here is my defense… he ordered a king size quilt-the quilters will understand, the brother won’t… peace out…
